We planted a new plum tree a few weeks back and saw leaves come up a couple weeks later. But a week later, the leaves are as it looks in the pic it's wrinkled. I dont know if I'm overwatering or underwatering. Pls help.

I'm not sure... But it may be the beginning of a disease or ... Have you had a cold spell recently? The leaves don't look right and underwatering/transplant shock would not cause that.

Can you take a branch back to the nursery you purchased it from and ask them?

Thank you for your advice. Upon closer inspection I found some green coloured insects and also a long legged insect on the leaves...sorry about the clarity of the picture.

there are a lot of tiny flying insects around in the soil as well...
